Circuit aircraft

Aircraft wanting to remain in the circuit, will call up requesting taxi to the active runway for departure. The aircraft should be given taxi instructions. Either during taxi, or as the aircraft reaches the holding point, it needs to be given a clearance for the flight. Clearances for circuit traffic can be given without any interaction with approach control.


Traffic leaving the zone

Aircraft wanting to leave the zone will call up requesting taxi to the active runway for departure. The aircraft should be given taxi instructions. Either during taxi, or as the aircraft reaches the holding point, it needs to be given a clearance for the flight. Clearances for aircraft wishing to leave the zone must be coordinated with approach control.


Take-Off

When issuing VFR aircraft with a take-off clearance, a direction of turn after departure should be specified.
